Art Birthday Party Decorations

My daughter is obsessed with all things art. There is always some kind of craft project in the works for her! That’s why when we were deciding on a birthday party theme, we knew she needed an art birthday party! When it comes to birthday party decorations, I like to make an impact, but I don’t want to go completely overboard like a lot of the parties that are found online. It just isn’t realistic! I am excited to share our art birthday party decorations with you today! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to get all of the details on the activities that we did for the party.

Christmas Matching Game Printable

Christmas classroom parties and Christmas break are right around the corner! There is going to be a lot of time to keep your kids entertained, before they have their Christmas goodies. When I was little, my mom made a matching game out of Halloween monsters and I loved it! We played it in my classroom as a traditional memory game, but when I was home I would play it and mix and match the parts of the monsters to make silly characters. I really wanted to make a version of this game for Christmas! So I created this Christmas memory matching game that can also be used as a Christmas character mix and match activity too!

Sensory Toddler Christmas Ornament Craft

Crafting during the holidays is one of my favorite things to do to celebrate the Christmas season. I have really grown to love crafting with my 6 year old daughter, but I really wanted to find some ways that my toddler could be involved in the Christmas creating!

Simple Reindeer Christmas Gift Tag

When I was growing up, we had a tradition where we would make Christmas gift tags after Thanksgiving dinner. It was always something that I looked forward to doing.

This year, I came up with this fun little reindeer Christmas gift tag and it was love at first sight!

Awesome Advent Calendars Your Family Will Love!

I have always loved advent calendars. I loved having some sort of Christmas countdown that I could do each day. It made me look forward to each day, rather than just waiting impatiently for the big day to arrive. When I became a mom, that love of advent calendars continued to grow as I watched that same magic unfold with my daughter as she got to discover what was in each day of her countdown. This year, we will probably have about five advent calendars going on at the same time and I love it! I think it will be so fun! Here are some of my favorite advent calendars and DIY advent calendar ideas that I just know your family will love as much as we do!
